This is the Perfect Female Body
Ladies (and gentlemen), Dr. David Holmes knows what the perfect female body looks like.
Well, if he has actually SEEN the perfect female body is a question that only he can answer. However, after doing some research, he has managed to find the formula that determines if your body is perfect or not.
Here is the formula -
Perfect Curve Score Calculation = ((BBD+THR+HWR)xBCL)+BS
The abbreviations stand for -
BBD - Bust Size
THR - Thigh-Height Ratio
HWR - Hip-Waist Ratio
BCL - Body Curve Line
BS - Body Symmetry
In order to find out how your curves measure up against this formula, plug in the numbers for each section by using the point system shown below, and chug. The highest number you can get is 80 - and if you do, congratulations - your body, "scientifically" speaking, is perfect.
Points for parts
DD-E = 5,
D or F = 4,
C or G = 3,
B or H = 2,
other = 1.
Thigh Ratio (thigh measurement divided by height)
0.28-0.3 = 5,
0.27 or 0.31 = 4,
0.32 to 0.35 = 3,
0.36 to 0.38 = 2,
other = 1.
Hip-Waist Ratio (circumference of your waist divided by hips)
0.7 = 5,
0.65 or 0.75 = 4,
0.6 or 0.8 = 3,
0.55 or 0.95 = 2,
other = 1
Body Curve Line
Smooth unbroken curves = 5
Trunk bust and thighs curve into each other = 4
Waist/hips or bust/waist lack concave curves = 3
Waist/hips and bust/waist lack any concave curves = 2
Straight lines and bulges = 1
Symmetrical = 5
Some facial distinctions = 4
Minor body and face distinctions = 3
Notable distinctions = 2
Very individual character and appearance = 1
Oh - he also says that the ideal breast size is DD to E, especially when combined with a specific hip-waist and thigh-height ratio.
The world is fascinated with the search for the perfect female body and what the proportions of a woman should or should not be. There are always different formulas and ratios thrown around in reference to women's bodies. There was the barbie ideal of 36-24-36 and 5'7". There is also the popular 0.7 waist-hip ratio. It is sad to see that in the name science, formulas are being released just so that women are constantly objectified and told exactly how perfect or imperfect their bodies are.
Is there any good that comes from releasing these formulas? Not to women, but perhaps to those who do benefit from women's insecurities. Can a woman's beauty really be determined by and boxed into a mere formula? Of course not. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I truly believe that every woman is beautiful. We are all unique (thankfully), and it is time that we realize that there really is no such concept as "perfect" - certainly not when it comes to our bodies. After all, even the idea of perfection in itself is flawed.
Dr. David Holmes's formula says that I am far from perfect, but my mother says that I am. And that is good enough for me. :)
